Sheet metal components are essential in many industries. To be competitive in sheet metal fabrication, manufacturers must be able to maximise raw material sheet utilisation. Hexagon’s dedicated sheet metal solutions digitalise the workflow from process planning, simulation and costing to fabrication and inspection, enabling better utilisation and greater efficiency throughout the process.
Maintain a data-driven approach to orchestrate the entire construction phase, creating a 3D model of productivity and efficiency — with higher quality, fewer reworks and less waste — while layering 4D cost and 5D BIM scheduling data throughout the project.
Design and engineering phase
With Hexagon’s innovations in manufacturing technology, users can digitally simulate and optimise product design and engineering to ensure component manufacturability, production productivity and output quality.
Maintain a digital thread through production, optimise machine tools, measure environmental variances and prevent downtime with predictive data analyses.
Automate and digitalise quality measurement with our world-leading metrology hardware and software, creating a bridge between the real and digital worlds.
Deploy Hexagon’s sensor software systems to transform siloed and disconnected processes into an integrated, data-driven manufacturing ecosystem that captures and creates value across the product lifecycle, enabling new business models and automating workflows to become increasingly autonomous, efficient and sustainable.
Operate and maintain phase
Leverage data from the planning, design and build phases to create an operational twin: a smart, digital reality that connects people, processes and events throughout the entire industrial facility lifecycle.
